Performance Rights Organizations

SoundExchange is the non-profit performance rights organization that collects statutory royalties from satellite radio (such as Pandora and SIRIUS XM), internet radio (Such as Southern Xsposure Radio AND SCM Gospel Radio), cable TV music channels and similar platforms for streaming sound recordings. The Copyright Royalty Board, which is appointed by The U.S. Library of Congress, has entrusted SoundExchange as the sole entity in the United States to collect and distribute these digital performance royalties on behalf of featured recording artists, master rights owners (like record labels), and independent artists who record and own their masters.

 

BMI – Broadcast Music, Inc., is a global leader in rights management, collects license fees from businesses that use music, which it distributes as royalties to songwriters, composers & music publishers. BMI collects license fees on behalf of the more than 500,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers it represents and distributes those fees as royalties to members whose works have been PUBLICLY PERFORMED.

 

The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) is a membership association of more than 390,000 U.S. composers, songwriters, lyricists, and music publishers of every kind of music. ASCAP is the only U.S. performing rights organization created and controlled by composers, songwriters and music publishers, with a Board of Directors elected by and from the membership. ASCAP protects the rights of its members by licensing and distributing royalties for the non-dramatic public performances of their copyrighted works.

 

AARC (Alliance of Artists and Recording Companies) is the leading US organization protecting the rights of featured artists and recording companies in the areas of Hometaping and rental rights. The purpose of AARC is to cover sales lost due to many people copying (duplicating) CDs instead of purchasing them. Since there is no way to know if a CD has been copied, AARC pays royalties for sales lost. The royalty amount is tracked by sales. Most likely, if a spool of rewritable discs is purchased, some professional CD is probably being copied. Therefore, all rewritable media has a royalty price included in the price of the spool to cover these losses.

Royalties from AARC are distributed once a year in December. If you or your artist has a professional CD in stores, you should DEFINITELY sign up with AARC to cover losses due to home taping. Registering with AARC does NOT interfere with your membership with ASCAP, BMI or any other PRO.
